A lot of people who are known as “Preppers” get a lot of crap from our friends, family and even strangers about they are trying to be prepared. Some make jokes about it and talk about a “Zombie Apocalypse” when asked questions about being prepared. The truth is that most never really believe that deceased humans will get up and walk around someday. We do however believe that if you take the Zombie out of Zombie Preparedness you are just left with Preparedness.
With all of the disasters that we have witnessed over the last few years from Japan to hurricanes and major storms, we always see Survivors. Sometimes it’s just blind luck that gets you through a disaster or terrorist attack, but what you do afterwards makes you a Survivor. The CDC’s has made an attempt at a tongue in cheek look at preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse recently, but what they were actually trying to do was put a new package on their message of “Be Prepared”. The exact same message we preach here every day.
So take a few minutes and look around you. What would you do if one minute you were sitting on your couch and the next everything in every direction was wiped off the face of the Earth. What would you have ready to save your friends, neighbors and family? Take some time this week to check out the following links we are providing you and get your house prepared. For the cost of a single night out on the town you can be a Survivor of any disaster, be it Zombies or a terrorist attack. Stay vigilant my friends.
